David Moyes says he wants West Ham to be competing in Europe every season, as attentions briefly turn back to the Premier League this weekend.

The Hammers host Arsenal at the London Stadium on Sunday, the derby sandwiched between the two legs of their Europa League semi-final against Eintracht Frankfurt.

Having lost the first of them 2-1 at home last night, Moyes’ men have work to do to reach the final of the competition, where a victory would not only secure major silverware for the club but also bring Champions League football to east London next season.

Amid Manchester United’s struggles, however, they are still in contention to qualify for the Europa League via their domestic performance.

The teams finishing fifth and sixth in the Premier League qualify for the second tier competition and Moyes’ men are just three points behind sixth-placed United with a game in hand, with the Scot desperate for more after their thrilling run so far this term.

“I want us to stay in there,” Moyes said.

“We’ve been challenging now for two years. We want to try and do it again because we’ve really enjoyed our European campaign.

“I think it’s lifted the entire club. I hope there’s more than one more year. We want to do it again. We want to keep that up.”
